is it that washington, d.c. gets fed every morning. there's not a farm or a cow or chicken within the city limits. how does it get fed? to someone direct it? does congress or the city counsel instructs that food be brought to the grocery stores? no. it is a spontaneous order, because there are people with demands, because there are people somewhere else with supply. or because there are people willing to supply something because they heard there is demand for it. this huge network, complex network, of satisfying people's needs is created. milton friedman talks about how he went to china, and he was asked by the minister of finance or somebody like that in china, a very smart man, you don't get to the top of a 5000 year old meritocracy without being every smart guy, and a he asked milton friedman who was in charge of material distribution in the united states. friedman said for once he was speechless. who is in charge of material distribution? he said i thought of telling them the chicago board of trade, but that's not really the answer either. the answer of course is no one is in charge of materials d

of the very practices under shaken by the city units that you once operated. for example, as treasury secretary he would be responsible for coordinating implementation of the so-called looker rules, which is intended to separate proprietary trading from the federally insured financial activities. you stated that you support the rule, and yet you were the chief operating officer for the units engaged in the sort of the activities the rule was meant to prevent. therefore if you were to be confirmed it could lead to an awkward situation in which your role as the chair of the fsoc from tester of the fsoc coming to effectively saying to the financial firms do as i say, not as i did. now these are not trivial matters. indeed, they bear directly on your qualifications to serve as the next treasury secretary. if the committee was given time to examine the record more thoroughly before today's hearing, i'm sure many of the questions that have already been answered. we have to explore some of these matters here today. finally, i just want to mention that when we met the nomination i told you th

american experiment as a city on a hill. indeed, our hymn, "america the beautiful," sings about our alabaster cities gleam. president kennedy's inaugural address said that the glow from our fire can truly light the world. and a generation later president obama's first inaugural noted that our ideals still light the world. we americans, we've described ourselves as a beacon of hope, a light in the darkness, our lamp lifted up in welcome and in example. daniel webster years ago said that our founders set the world an example. that was what the founding of america meant. our founders set the world an example. president clinton has pointed out that the power of our example -- the power of that example in the world has always been greater than any example of our power. that was the way bill clinton described it. and when daniel webster said that our founding fathers had set before the world an example, he went on to say this -- and i quote -- "the last hopes of mankind therefore rest with us. and if it should be proclaimed that our example had become an argument against the experiment, t

advantage of it, without unduly exposing it to our adversaries. let me move on to private city and civil liberties. anytime you're talking about sharing the information, sharing information with respect to cybersecurity, you have to be conscious of privacy and civil liberties and you have to make sure those are protected. that has been a priority of the administration and it continues to be so. so, while there are perhaps fewer concerns in the executive order because the focus is on sharing information outward, we have established a robust, oversight regime and in particular we have highlighted the fips. that is the government speak, right? if i don't insert an acronym every two or three minutes it is just not fun. the fips are the fair information practice principles. these date back to the 1970's when they were developed dealing with health records. essentially it is what are the principles you need to use in considering privacy with respect to information? so we think it's important we establish these as a one of the principles that we're going to follow with respect to sharing inform

not have massive artillery zeroed in on some nearby friendly city. we need to take that into account. on the other hand, i totally agree with you that iranians have a long tradition and a great interest, and they want to be a power in the region. and one of the questions we have to resolve, while we can't dictate it, is what our role in the region will be in the future, what their role, what our arab friends' role will be and where it will go. and the best of all possible worlds, this is walking hand in hand into the sunset at the end of a hollywood movie. that's pretty far down the road. the second question is that while it would be nice to say there is going to be a line in our discussions with iran if they ever get engaged, if we get into any kind of gear between the regional developments and the iranian bilateral issue, number one nuclear but perhaps others, i think it's going to be hard to do that if the iranians themselves think there is traction to be gained. >> right. >> in dealing with the process. and so one of our problems is not being able to expand the nuclear question s

nuclear bomb or weapon could be smuggled into new york or any city and detonated and go off. so i'll tell you, in some ways that's a good analogy but very often nowadays as soon as people start to talk about nukes as an analogy to cyber, i think they probably don't know what you're talking about because as someone who probably came up with a cold war way of thinking and it's an analogy that if it is almost always false. this is another example of why it's false. loose noose is an easy problem compared to constrain the flow of destructive malware from black market. why? personal loose noose produced almost entirely to every that i know by nationstates. second of all, they give off a signature, right? there's radiation ways you can attract them and it's a physical thing like don't do the obvious but it's something you can track. those are not all the same situation when you come to distrust of malware, which can be produced by an individual which doesn't exist as a physical thing, and passes over borders in a way that is nearly if not completely impossible to track. okay, so i think that i
